    This is a remarkable little film. Well filmed, honest and mature from someone still quite young. Not only that but it's a tough adventure, the kind that most of us would not even contemplate and further, wonder why anyone would. I'm glad he did though because otherwise I wouldn't have been able to watch it.

    Very enjoyable - great escapism, I wonder if he will do other films for different parts of his trip.

    You set up you camera on a tripod, ride off into the sunset, ride all the way back to pick up your camera, hoping a passing nomad has his own iphone and doesn't want yours. Making a good touring movie is twice the work of simply touring, so chapeau to anyone who can make a good one.

  10. Loved the adventure and the filming. I think he realised he bit off more than he could chew. Makes me look soft.
